Codex Seraphinianus (1981) is a surreal encyclopedia written in an imaginary alphabet, made during thirty months by Italian industrial designer Luigi Serafini. Brimming with bizarre stuff, it's worth checking out for Chaos and alien world inspiration, to say the least. As can be seen from one of the illustrations, the Codex gives a new meaning to "make the beast with two backs":

That is one very weird book. It reminds me a bit of the Voynich manuscript, which is far older and a lot less weird but still bizar.
